Famous Serbian filmmaker Emir Kusturica has unveiled a monument to Gavrilo Princip, the revolutionary that assassinated Austro-Hungarian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie in 1914, during the monarch’s visit to Sarajevo.

“Princip exists not just as a great emotion,” Kusturica said on Monday at the ceremony in Tovarisevo, 109km north-west of Belgrade.

On the occasion of the centenary of World War 1, Kusturica also revealed a monument dedicated to 50 Serbian war volunteers from Tovarisevo.

Kusturica recalled that the bridge in his home town Sarajevo, the present capital of Bosnia-Herzegovina, was named after Gavrilo Princip.
